Let’s bring Sociable Soccer to Mac and Linux!
Update: The thread asking for Mac and Linux version has over 100 comments and continues to grow. To that, developer Jon Hare said they will “consider Mac and Linux versions more seriously if interest continues to grow“.
Still interested? Head over to the Steam thread and leave a comment!
Let’s do something new. Let’s bring a game to Mac and Linux.
We can actually make a difference and help bring a game we all desperately need: a good sports game.
And especially a soccer one (or football for the rest of the World). FIFA isn’t coming anytime soon and this could be our last chance to enjoy the beautiful game on a Mac.
I’m talking about Sociable Soccer, the game from the creator of the super popular Sensible Soccer from the 90s:
After reaching out to Jon Hare, the man in charge of the game, regarding possible Mac and Linux ports, he told me:
We would be happy to consider Mac/Linux versions of Sociable Soccer if we know the demand is sufficient.
To do so, please visit this Steam forum thread and leave a comment.
And by the way, he also confirmed the game uses Unity, an engine that supports cross-platform development. It’s never easy to port a game to a new platform, but when you’re using something like Unity, it’s much easier.
The tech is there to create Mac and Linux versions. Now let’s show them the demand is there too.
